This post is written to conclude and recap my series on obtaining temporary child custody in Las Vegas, Nevada. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that, for obvious reasons, there are situations in which parents need to obtain custody in short order. There is nothing scarier than knowing that your son or daughter may be in danger. If you believe that your child is facing an imminent threat then it is important that you contact an attorney immediately. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide information which will assist you in selecting a lawyer. If you are in need of assistance then contact my office today to schedule an initial consultation.
I addressed several topics over my recent articles. Some of these subjects which I addressed include:
- Filing for temporary custody in emergency situations
- The need to contact a lawyer before contacting Child Protective Services
- How to make a temporary child custody order permanent
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, it is important to understand the process of seeking an emergency custody order. Understanding the process allows a parent to better understand whether or not their situation is truly an emergency, and it also assists them with knowing what to expect as the matter moves forward. Second, it is strongly advised that you contact an attorney before contacting CPS. If you make a claim to CPS, and the claim is found to be unsubstantiated, then you may actually wind up losing time with your child. By speaking with an attorney, you help to ensure that you are not making unfounded claims to the agency. Third, it may be necessary to make a temporary order more permanent in order to safeguard your son or daughter’s well-being.
One point I stressed throughout each of these articles is the need to speak with counsel as soon as possible if you believe your son or daughter is in danger. The longer you wait to speak with an attorney, then the more likely the court is to believe that the situation is not serious. I am a Las Vegas family law lawyer who devotes her practice to domestic relations law.
